Bob (Ty Burrell) has been the Iowa state butter sculptor champion for 15 years straight, making fine sculptures such as "The Last Supper" and "Newt on a Horse." The state fair has politely asked him to step aside and let someone else win. His overly straight, June Clever clone, wife Laura (Jennifer Garner) with a foul mouth objects and decides to carry on the family...

3.0 out of 5 stars TRUE EVENT
Quite enjoyable movie. Olivia Wilde is great !!! Made some enquiries and the main event depicted
in the movie actually takes place every year in Iowa. Nothing much not to like about it.
A pleasant if not spectacular movie.

This review is from: Butter [Blu-ray] [2011] [US Import] (Blu-ray)
Bob (Ty Burrell) has been the Iowa state butter sculptor champion for 15 years straight, making fine sculptures such as "The Last Supper" and "Newt on a Horse." The state fair has politely asked him to step aside and let someone else win. His overly straight, June Clever clone, wife Laura (Jennifer Garner) with a foul mouth objects and decides to carry on the family tradition and enter the contest herself. Her step daughter is excellently played by Ashley Greene. Bob seeks comfort in a stripper/prostitute (Olivia Wilde) who gets involved with the contest and also has some great swagger music.

Meanwhile a young 10 year old African-American girl, Destiny (Yara Shahidi), is bounced around foster homes. She is overly mature and has taken a shine to butter sculpturing, which her foster parents (Alicia Silverstone and Rob Corddry) encourage, but think is a bit odd. I think you can guess the where this competition is going.

The film is exceedingly funny as it satirizes American life, yet at the same time has heart without being too drippy or a chick flick. The script had great characters, even minor characters such as Carol Ann played by the always comical Kristen Schaal. A great film for the adults, and might make a good date night flick. The end has a blooper reel. The outtakes and extended scenes are worth a peek, but not as good as the main feature.

Parental Guide: F-bombs, sex, girl/girl action. No nudity.

This review is from: Butter [Blu-ray] [2011] [US Import] (Blu-ray)
An interesting comedy about a woman whose husband, a renowned butter sculpture retires and interferes with her plans for the Whitehouse. She ends up competing with her own butter skills against the talents of a displaced child.

Just a tad over done with the potty mouth used as comedy. At least it was not slapstick except for a traffic encounter.

On the positive side is the movie is packed with excellent actors that know how to make you see the characters that they are playing.

Too bad the real sculptures only get credit in the closing credits.

Destiny asks Brooke (Olivia Wilde) a person of ill repute "Where do you work?"" Barns and Noble." I have gained a new respect for books.

You should like that style of humor. If not, you won't get this movie. Many of the characters are exaggerated and the plot line itself is a bit over the top. Yara Shahidi did an excellent job.
